  • For this week’s Kindness Challenge: we are accepting that we are not perfect.  Sometimes, the best way to address a weakness is to find someone who is already great at it and team up with them. This helps you to compensate for your weaknesses while also learning by example as well.  This works with attributes like kindness and patience as well as skills in sports and academics.
